5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

When my family and I arrived at the hotel, we were politely greeted by the smiling front desk staff. The front desk staff was always able to help us with anything we needed and always able to answer any of our questions. The check in was done in a timely fashion and was easy to get through. Our room was very clean and tidy. The kids loved swimming in the indoor pool while the wife and I enjoyed the hot tub.They also have a great breakfast available in the morning. This was easily one of the best hotels we have ever statyed in. We wish we could of stayed longer if we could have. This will definelty be our stop next time we are in the area. We loved it here.

Front desk was slow at check in. Rooms were adequate. Walls are thin so you can hear everything from the other rooms and hallways. Breakfast was nice, eggs, fruit, waffles, cereal and coffee and starts at 6 a.m.
Noticed mouse/rat poison traps outside of doors. Didn't see anything inside.
They have smoking rooms on the 2nd floor and the hallways smell. First floor was fine no smell.

The good - they have a small indoor pool and a nice hot tub - very relaxing after a hard day. The bad - the room was dirty: hair in the tub, lots of dust bunnies along the walls, stained coverlet on the bed, and a ripped curtain. The hotel could use some major cleaning. Also, at every turn there is a huge tip jar or a tip envelope which I found annoying. There was no way I was going to tip the cleaning crew! The desk staff was verty nice and admitted they were having problems with employees that don't want to clean - so why not let them go and get folks that can do their job?

Found the motel easily about 1/4 mile off I-81 so it was away from the major interstate and quieter than many others. The woman who checked us in was polite and helpful to find a place to eat. There was also a swimming pool and whirlpool available. The room was clean and well appointed with amenities like a microwave, and free internet (which seems to be a standard now.) Although we did not have a table to use as a dining table (we ordered in), I would stay here again.
